Update No. 5: Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in Jefferson County

Communication is important during incidents like the current highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) outbreak at a Jefferson County poultry farm. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) continues to work with local, state, and federal partners to engage with all affected parties in a time-sensitive manner. As partners continue to work toward depopulation and safe composting, the DATCP HPAI in Wisconsin website will be updated daily.

DATCP will also continue to publish updated versions of the HPAI in Wisconsin: Frequently Asked Questions document; this is a living document and will be updated on an ongoing basis. Today, in an effort to continue to engage with the community and provide updates as soon as possible, the FAQ document was delivered to neighbors surrounding the compost site. DATCP encourages media and members of the public to send additional questions to DATCPmediainquiries@wisconsin.gov.
